"Yesterday" as written by Jarvis Branson Cocker, Stephen Patrick Mackey, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle and Mark Andrew Webber....
I remember a different time
I remember a different me
When there was springtime in my heart
But it's winter
And I'm shivering with cynicism now
And I long for yesterday

Yesterday, a day of joy
A day of limitless possibilities
I remember a different boy
With love surrounding
Joy abounding, peace resounding
Where, oh where did that boy go?

What's wrong with me now, God?
My world is gray, so please help me out
I pray
'Cause I want to live in yesterday

Take me back to a time of naivete
Neverending days
And no need to question things
'Cause I'm tired of staring out my window
Wishing I were someone I should be
I guess I remember a different me
